A nicely done article on looking at your web pages with a different mind-set. Check out Boxes and Arrows: Natural Selections: Colors Found in Nature and Interface Design.

Typicallly B&A has some high brow articles, e.g. “Semiotics: A Primer for Designers”, stuff for people labled “information architects”, but now and then you find some down to earth, practical ones like this one on color.

A unique palette based on colors found in nature can get you out of the World Wide Web color rut and help create a more memorable website.

Well illustrated, with real examples, I think it is time to comb through some landscape photos and look for some new color sets.
